Trump: Military Parade In Washington Would Be "Great For The Spirit"

|

Speaking to FOX News Channel's Jeanine Pirro in a Saturday night phone interview, President Trump elaborated on his plan to stage a military parade on Veteran's Day, or maybe July 4 if they can get it together in time.

"I think it's great for spirit," Trump said about the idea."The military loves it, they love the idea."

He added: "It would have a lot of plane fly-overs, I think it would be great for the spirit of the country, you know? We have a great country and we should be celebrating our country. So, we'll see if we can do it at a reasonable cost."





TRUMP: We are talking about probably Veteran's Day, it’s preliminarily, you know, being discussed. But we’re talking about probably Veteran's Day. I like July 4 because July 4 in Washington D.C. would be beautiful.

PIRRO: Yes.

TRUMP: It would be down -- up and down Pennsylvania Avenue. A lot of it would be fly-overs. I was at the Bastille Day Parade in France with the president of France, very good guy.

PIRRO: Oh, OK.

TRUMP: And it was quite something and frankly, I think it's great for spirit. The military loves it, they love the idea. We would have West point and Annapolis, and the Air Force Academy, Coast Guard Academy.

And it would just be a great representative parade. It would have a lot of plane fly-overs, I think it would be great for the spirit of the country, you know? We have a great country and we should be celebrating our country. So, we'll see if we can do it at a reasonable cost. And if we can't, we won't do it. But the generals would love to do it, I can tell you, and so would I. I think it's great for our country in terms of being a cheerleader and the spirit. It's very important.
